London, UK – 18 May 2022: Rix.GG, an inclusive UK and European focused esports organisation, announces the Wild Rift team has taken 2nd place at the WREC European Championship in Barcelona.
The win means the Wild Rift team will enter the next stage of the competition and will move on to compete in the Icons Global Championship in Singapore.
Carlos “Melon” Malzahn, Wild Rift Team Manager, said: “Every tournament is unique in its own way and this time was no exception. With pride, I can say that we gave it our all and tried our hardest. Learning from this valuable experience will help us to strive for even greater highs. Icons will be an even bigger stage for us to prove our skills. We will let the world know what RIX is capable of.”
David “M0ZILLA” Tovmasyan, Coach, said: “Passion for the game and the competition drives us everyday to practice hard and learn from our past mistakes. Barcelona was just an insight into what we are truly capable of, and our plan has always been to show everyone that we are a contender among the best teams in the world and what better place to showcase that than ICONS. RIX and the EMEA region are not to be underestimated..”
Arnaud “Dooms” van Marcke de Lummen, Coach, said: “Pride would be my gut feeling to reflect after Barcelona. I like to remind myself, what matters isn’t the finish-line but rather the quest: we’re going to Icons, and we firmly intend to show the world what Rix and EMEA are made of!”
